Hi, I have traveled to Korea from 12/2-21/2. I have a little cough and my brother have fewer and sore throat on 7/3. Do we need to take the test for Covid-19?

Hello there,good day!

I understand your concern due to the recent coronavirus outbreak worldwide. You should monitor closely your health for any signs of symptoms such as fever, coughing, shortness of breath and others up to 14 days.

You should report and go to your nearest healthcare provider as soon as possible. Delaying in presenting yourself may bring more harm.

Given that you have just returned from Korea, you are encouraged to answer the quiz on Risk Assessment for COVID-19 to evaluate your health status in regards to this disease. After completing this quiz, you will be classified into several categories.

Besides COVID-19 infection, your symptoms can be caused by other health problems such as:

-Other bacterial or viral infection

-Asthma

-Allergic Rhinitis

-Pneumonia

-Tuberculosis

-COPD

You may consult a MOH doctor by clicking Ask Doctor at the Ministry of Health website (COVID-19 Portal) to ask any health issues related to COVID-19 starting from 8.30 am to 5.00 pm.

After 5.00 pm till 12.00 am, please direct your enquiries to our DoctorOnCall website at this link https://www.doctoroncall.com.my/tanya/.

Thank you and take care.!
